MSS set to continue with Kawasaki

MSS confirms its presence on the 2012 MCE British Superbike Championship with Kawasaki machinery, though no riders have been confirmed as yet.
Kawasaki looks set to have at least eight bikes on the MCE British Superbike Championship grid in 2012 after MSS Racing confirmed its place on the 'Elite' grid.

Having competed as Kawasaki's leading BSB entrant since 2008, MSS was reportedly considering a change of machinery in the wake of Paul Bird Motorsport's decision to return to the series with substantial backing from the manufacturer.

Nonetheless, with Stuart Easton and Gary Mason notching up five podiums between them and Alex Lowes securing the team's first BSB pole position at Thruxton in 2011, team manager Nick Morgan is confident of improving further in 2012.

“It has been well documented that last season has had its highs and lows but it was fantastic to achieve BSB podium finishes from both riders,” he told the British Superbike website. “To achieve 18 podiums across the classes is a strong record for any team and proves that we are more than capable of running at the front. We now need to carry that momentum through to next season and once we have everything finalised we want to be back stronger.

“I feel we have proved ourselves this year and now I am excited about stepping up to rival the other teams. It has been a fantastic season and we are proud to be part of the championship; I hope that next year will be even better!”

MSS Racing will enter 2012 with an all-new rider line-up following Easton's move to PBM and Mason's switch to PR Racing and is the tenth team to confirm its presence.

According to the BSB website, MSS's apparent decision to continue with the same manufacturer sees it become the fourth confirmed Kawasaki entrant after PBM, PR and Pr1mo Bournemouth.

Since when has bike racing been all about revenge. Chris Walker should stick to his motox track business and let somebody else shine that has done their time on lesser machinery in lesser teams and proved their worth. Step forward Mr Hickman. Never has one man been more ready for a proper stab at it.
